    • As most of you know, I am looking for another job, but my husband is not supportive of this.  He thinks I should stay where I am and thinks the commute is not bad.  It is very annoying that he is not supportive but I am continuing to look elsewhere anyways.

    • It never hurts to look.  You may not find anything that suits you.  Then again you may find something that’s much better.

      From the point of view of the stay at home  spouse, a partner changing jobs can be very nerve wracking and cause all kinds of insecurity.  

      My hubby is always supportive to the best of his ability.  I know I’ve made some decisions that he’s thought were nuts, but he was there for me anyway and was genuinely glad when everything worked out for me.

    • I was a stay at home mom for a few years, so I know that angle of it.   When you‘re not the one working, security becomes pretty important.  

      Aside from work, you sound like you’ve really been enjoying life lately and maybe he’s thinking of that too.  Another job might be more demanding of YOU and therefore there’s less of you for your family.

    • I agree with T, but then again, men are men, and we really never know what their true feelings are about things...they think one thing and then say something different just to appease us...we are night and day...women and men.

      Go with your gut feeling, Diane, if you feel a change is for the better and a schedule can be worked out that suits everyone...it is your decision.
